However, Kanye's return to Instagram didn't last for long, as the following day he deactivated his account once again and has not been seen on the site since. "He would go to the hospital and he would rap and sing, and I think Lamar started to get his function back and started to talk once he started to listen to a lot of music".
"My favorite Saint Pablo Tee", he wrote.
The hip hop mogul fondly reflected on entering Madison Square Garden to debut "The Life of Pablo" with Lamar Odom by his side just four months after the ex-NBA star was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel. West's sister-in-law Khloé married Odom in 2009 and filed for divorce in 2013.
"Kanye really felt we can cure him through music, like we can get him to talk", Kardashian said on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" in May 2016. "That's when I realized I could start thinking again and things were coming back to me and I could start articulating it".
The Odom memory comes at an interesting time. But the happy news has been overshadowed by allegations that the Cleveland Cavaliers player, 27, cheated on her with multiple women throughout her pregnancy.
West's wife Kim Kardashian has previously spoken about the effect West's music had on Odom while he was in the hospital.
Kanye already has a tattoo dedicated to his firstborn child, North West, and is likely to have another design in motion for his youngest daughter, Chicago West, who was born via surrogate in January.
